‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Jack Appoints Eve as Police Chief [Video]

Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal new Mayor Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) appoints wife Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) as the new Police Commissioner. He wastes no time changing up the status quo in Salem. Hot off the heels of his surprise win of the election, he almost immediately fires the current top cop Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso).

However, it is his next executive power play that sends shock waves through the Salem Police Department. So, Salem has a new mayor, a new commissioner and a newlywed couple with lots of newfound power. The shakeup and shakedowns have just begun on the NBC soap.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Jack Deveraux Fires Hope Brady

Abe Carver (James Renolds) lost his reelection bid on DOOL. So, it comes as no surprise the new Mayor makes changes to his inner circle. Jack Deveraux is quick to fire Hope Brady as Commissioner of the SPD. Frankly, her firing should not be unexpected. After all, under her watch, Holly Jonas’ (Scarlett and Harlow Mallory) kidnapping ended with her fiery “death”.

Surely Hope had to see this coming regardless of how the election played out on Days of Our Lives. Rafe Hernandez’s (Galen Gering) suspension is not enough accountability to the people of Salem for the tragic ending to Holly’s life. Also, let’s not forget all the chaos the cartel unleashed.

DOOL Spoilers: Eve Donovan Is The New Commish

Jack Deveraux and Eve Donovan are surely the new power couple in Salem. Days of Our Lives spoilers confirm Jack will replace Hope Brady with his bride as Commissioner. No doubt this move is bold and frankly out of the left field. It makes no sense that a woman with no law enforcement background is appointed to such a high-level position. Clearly, Eve has an agenda all her own and convinced her amnesiac hubby that she would be best as Commish.

Jack’s choice to replace Hope with Eve will be scrutinized. There are many other internal candidates that Jack could have and should have promoted. Certainly, Detective Rafe Hernandez or Detective Eli Grant (Lamon Archey), both former FBI agents, would be more acceptable as the next top cop on DOOL. Eve will struggle to gain their respect. However, she is blinded by her vendetta against Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson). So, with this newly obtained power, she finally is in a position to make Ben pay for her daughter Paige Larson’s (True O’Brien) murder on Days of Our Lives.

Ben Weston Better Watch Out

Eve Donovan has not bought into the redemption of reformed serial killer Ben Weston. After all, her only daughter was his second victim. So, although many Salemites are able to give Ben a second chance, Eve Donovan is certainly not one of those people on Days of Our Lives. Just when Ben finally got Hope Brady off his back, Eve Donovan will swoop in and continue to make Ben’s life unbearable.

Now that all the resources of the Salem PD are at her disposal, Eve is able to ramp up her efforts to make Ben’s life a living hell. She cannot bring back her daughter or have Ben prosecuted for Paige’s murder, but she can continue where Hope left off. Ben Weston faces railroading again. Also, Eve is now in a position to keep her word to Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) and keep her confession of setting the fire that nearly killed Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) back on Ben.

Future DOOL spoilers indicate Ben and Ciara launch their own investigation into the fire. It is likely this quest of theirs will lead them to learn the truth and further escalate Claire’s downward spiral. Stay tuned to the NBC sudser to see how this all unfolds.
